Hundred Waters Enlist Tim Hecker, the Field for Remix EP
submitted by mephisto 39 minutes ago (via feedproxy.google.com)
Though they're signed to Skrillex's OWSLA imprint, Hundred Waters are the furthest thing from a bro'ed-out dubstep band. So much so that, when they prepare a remix EP, the indie pop artists work with some avant-garde auteurs. The group have recently put the finishing touches on a remix EP surrounding "Down From the Rafters," a single from their album The Moon Rang Like a Bell. Rather than let

submitted by mephisto 39 minutes ago (via feedproxy.google.com)
October is the year's spookiest month, and insanely busy songwriter Ryan Adams is getting into the spirit of the season with the latest instalment in his PAX-AM singles series. This latest 7-inch EP is called Vampires, and it's due out on October 28. That's the rather bloody artwork above. See the four-song tracklist below (and note that there's a very scary-sounding song called "Clown Asylum"). T

Big Ups – “Rash”
submitted by mephisto 51 minutes ago (via feedproxy.google.com)
New York punks Big Ups started off the year by releasing their awesomely raw debut album Eighteen Hours Of Static. They’ll wind it down by dropping a new split EP with the Brooklyn band Washer. The first Big Ups song on the split is a fearsome, erratic pigfuck sludge-monster called “Rash,” and it might be [...]
 
Unreleased Velvet Underground Album To Be Included In New Box Set
submitted by mephisto 51 minutes ago (via feedproxy.google.com)
The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third LP is getting a “super deluxe” reissue for its 45th anniversary, and part of the bonus material is an entire unreleased album the band recorded in 1969 to get out of their contract with MGM. As Pitchfork reports, much of the material later ended up on VU swan song Loaded [...]
 
J. Fernandez – “Close Your Eyes”
submitted by mephisto 51 minutes ago (via feedproxy.google.com)
Here’s another jazz-infused psych-pop excursion from J. Fernandez’s Memorize Now EP. Like “Cosmic Was” before it, the Rhodes-laden “Close Your Eyes” is too singular to fit neatly into a specific musical lineage. The music tumbles all over an interior realm, rarely settling into one place for long, beholden to the whims of its creator’s imagination. [...]
